Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors
As a widely known historically black university, the majority of students at North Carolina A&T are African American, but diversity encompasses more areas than solely race. There are opportunities to meet all kinds of people at North Carolina A&T, and while African Americans constitute the largest racial group on campus, you will also see Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian, Indian, and African students, among students of other ethnic backgrounds. The number of international students that attend North Carolina A&T grows each year. The University has a Multicultural Student Center that encourages cultural unity and is open to students of all cultural backgrounds. International food events, parades, and organizations make students from all backgrounds feel extremely comfortable.

Gay Pride
Gay and lesbian students feel comfortable here and interact with all A&T students. All students are accepted here, and your sexual preference may have little to no effect on friendships and associations. There is an on-campus organization called PROUD, which is geared toward gay and LGBT students. Those who identify themselves as "straight" or non-homosexual are also welcomed to join PROUD, and are referred to as "allies."
Political Activity
NC A&T students are encouraged through voting rallies to voice their opinions and make their votes count, and students are able to vote on campus at the Dudley building during political elections. Alicia Keys visited NC A&T on October 26, 2012, to rally voters for the second presidential election of Barack Obama.
Economic Status
More than 90 percent of students receive financial aid here.
Most Common Religions
Christianity is the most popular, and there are several campus ministries groups that students can join. Non-denominational Christian services are held on campus every Sunday during the fall and spring semesters. Also, "Aggies 4 Christ" is a very interactive religious group on campus, among others.
Minority Clubs on Campus
The Multicultural Student Center was established to unify all students and embrace their different backgrounds and cultures. The center regularly hosts events, programs and international fairs. There are several other groups on campus, including the African Aggies.
Did You Know?
Students who are not African American are eligible for minority scholarships at North Carolina A&T.
